Template Risk Assessment Forms for the construction industry

Building Risk Assessment Forms

This Building Risk Assessment Forms folder contains task specific risk assessment forms covering a variety of activities regularly undertaken on construction sites large and small. The risk assessment forms range from unloading the delivery lorries to bricklaying, plastering and painting.

Completing a task specific risk assessment form is an important exercise that not only helps you to make your workplace safer and eliminate accidents, but also assists you in complying with the relevant health and safety legislation. By using a systematic method of looking at your work activities and assessing what could go wrong you will go a long way to ensuring the safety of your employees on site. If you are a sub-contractor you may be asked to provide your risk assessments before starting work. These forms, when properly filled in, will also show your prospective clients that you are serious about managing health and safety on site.

Each risk assessment is partially completed to assist you in considering the hazards and control measures in respect of the activities you undertake on site.

After all your best efforts, should any of your employees have an accident while on your site or if you have a visit from the HSE, these Building Risk Assessment Forms can help to show that you have taken steps to prevent accidents or a breach of legislation.

How to use the Risk Assessment Form:

You may find it useful to print off a copy of the blank building risk assessment form located in this folder and manually write in your findings; the hazards you have identified and the controls you have and will need. To help you with this process you may find it useful to read our Guidance Notes - How to do a Risk Assessment.

Once you have hand-written your building risk assessment form you may wish to revisit this electronic version to input your data. If you wish to enter more than 5 hazards on the form then right-click in an empty space within the bottom row and select the ‘Insert’ option. You will be given a variety of options, please select the ‘insert rows below’ option and a new row should appear below the current one. To work out the Level of Risk (R) for each hazard on the form multiply the Probability value (P) by the Severity value (S).

Once you have completed your building risk assessment form you should transfer the information in the ‘further controls/action’ column into your Action Plan so that you can monitor who has carried out the works and when.
